Description for Cleome

Cleome or spider flower is often overlooked as a seedling in garden centers because of its nondescript, almost weedy, appearance. However, once established in the flower garden, cleome puts on a dazzling summer flower show until frost. It’s a tall, thorny-stalked annual with spider-like flower heads.
When planted in groups it gives the impression of a flowering shrub.
